On this tour we will go to the best food street in Cairo. Even if you are not familiar or a fan of Egyptian food you should go to Alfy Street and try the best street food in Cairo. It’s full of all sorts Egyptian food restaurants and carts as well as international food, which this street are government inspected regularly for cleanliness and considered very safe. It is the ideal place to have dinner after your tour in Cairo.

This street is where local Egyptian families gather to eat various food and meals and drink fresh fruit drinks and hot drinks at the cheapest prices

Yes, at the cheapest prices!

For only 10 dollars, you can eat more than three meals, drink a large sized fresh juice, get some sweets and drink a delicious hot cup of Egyptian tea to finish.

You will see the cooking process from A to Z, not only about the foodstuffs, but also you will get a chance to learn about Egyptian eating habits which are different from all other countries. Drinking Hibiscus, Karakare, Helba, or any of the various typical Egyptian beverages, is a pleasant experience for visitors and guests to get a real taste experience. For smokers, there is the Shisha or hoka. 

I will be with you to explain our Egyptian food and take the best photos of your Cairo street food tour. It's the place where food art and Cairo lifestyle come together harmoniously providing you a unique & remarkable experience.

Phenomenal! I'm not an adventurous food person but I loved everything. It was so cool to go down a local street (also so cheap) and experience Egyptian food. It was nice to end at a cafe off the beaten path to end the night. If we had more time in Cairo we would've gone back to eat at these spots that's how good they were.

Second tour with Sherif, second amazing experience. He told us the sectrets and stories behind each food, always very precisely and funny. We have been in 4 or 5 street food restaurantes trying different tradicional meals. All of them very high quality and reasonable prices (around less than us$ 10 in total, including tea and shisha smoking)

This tour is an absolute must if you are visiting Cairo. Sherif was a fantastic guide. The moment we met, my friend and I were in fits of laughter. He is super friendly, informative about the local cuisine and Egyptian culture. The street food was also delicious. Thank you!

If you want to experience local foods whilst seeing traditional dances it's worth booking this tour. Sherif took us to very nice restaurant where he explained us the foods and ordered foods with us to try and enjoy. The restaurant had live music with traditional male dancers (khawal). It was very nice experience to see the Egyptian/Arabic culture. The entire time we were enjoying meal with Sherif the discussions were very broad so whatever you like to discuss or learn from Sherif has always answer for it.
